Experience an Authentic Southern Style Smokey Barbecue in your own backyard or at your business. We handle everything from the planning and cooking, to set up and clean up. JR’s serves up real All American Smokehouse Barbecue. Quality Meats: Ribs, Brisket, Pork, Chicken and Hot Links. Rubbed in special seasonings and slow cooked in our wood fired pits for up to 12 hours. The way it’s done in Texas, Memphis, Kansas City, and the Carolinas. Cooking with smoke and spice, tradition and passion. Meat so flavourful, tender and smokey, that it falls off the bone.

Let us serve your guests some Barbecue! *Meaty Pork Ribs seasoned and slow smoked to perfection, and slathered in our Original BBQ Sauce. *Tender juicy free range Chicken marinated in our special rub, smoked and mopped in our BBQ sauce. *Pork Shoulder smoked for 12 hours, hand pulled, and served on a bun topped with slaw and Carolina BBQ Sauce. *Texas Style Angus Beef Brisket dry rubbed and smoked for 12 hours. Served with BBQ sauce on the side. Dig into slabs of ribs served with homemade sides of Ranch Beans, Homestyle Potato Salad, and Tangy Coleslaw. All of our BBQ sauces, rubs and salads are made from scratch and prepared by hand; with recipes that have been passed down through generations of family and legendary pitmasters. JR’s will arrive at your function at the crack of dawn with our mobile smoker, get the fire going, and set up the food preparation and serving areas. We will cook all day so all you have to do is enjoy your guests and party. The real wood fired pit will help set the mood with mouth watering aromas of tender barbecued meat. Glimpses of racks of ribs smoking away in our Texas style Pit is a real crowd pleaser. Your meal is presented buffet style on our serving tables with checker table cloths. Servings are hearty so no one will go home hungry. We’ll pack you up any leftovers, and clean up the serving area. JR’s mobile catering is perfect for promotional and corporate events, parties, weddings, car shows, store openings, wakes, game day, boozeups, and breakups. We strive to offer your guests a meat experience they will thank you for. We accommodate parties and events from 50-1,000 guests.

Our Brisket won the 2013 Sample Food Festival Golden Fork Award
“Dish of the Day at yesterday’s festival was JR’s 24 hour smoked brisket on local hickory ashes. One of my best food moments this year. A well-deserved trophy! Oh, it’s hard being a food judge…” -Fast Ed (Facebook page)
